Today my brother and I set out to meet member case442. On the way to his house the gps took us up a narrow, winding one land road on the side of a mountain. Thankfully the road wasn't snow covered or else we would have been stuck on that road. After we got to his house I picked up a Wheel Horse C161 tractor that I had bought from him about a month ago. then we looked at all of his tractors  and talked for a while. I got to see a really nice Wagner tractor that he has and his new project, a really nice Camaro.


Next we drove a few miles up the highway to look at a Sears SS16 tractor that I had been watching on CL. The roads where getting slick with a mix of snowy slush but we made it ok. The tractor wouldn't fire at all, I think the points may be bad/dirty. Overall it's in nice shape, just dirty from sitting outside for awhile. It also came with a homemade generator attachment and a nice snowplow. It also has what looks like the original seat that is in really nice shape and not cracked or ripped at all. I paid 280 for the whole package which I think is a decent price.


The plan is to get both of them running or if the won't run I'll use them for parts.

Look like a couple of great survivors. Hope they fire up easy for you.

They both look like they're in good condition.The hood hinges look like they're not broke on the sears.they're fiberglass and always broke or cracked.

That's a really nice sears! I restored one just like it for my brother in law, "ckjakline" is right, the hood hinge looks in good shape. I had to rebuild the hinge on the sears I had, looks like you got a good deal on it!.

The wheel horse looks nice too, but I don't know much about them.

Looks like you need to get that sears going and put it to work moving snow!

Good luck on your new projects.

Nice score! Get that Sears going, you won't be disappointed. If it's shot and you part it out, I'll buy the seat. I'm not a big fan of the duct tape that the previous owner graced mine with.
